The increase in the net profit after tax was primarily attributable to a reversal of impairment of $39.6 million Refer to Note 4 for more details. In addition, a revised method of capitalising indirect costs, adopted in the current financial period, resulted in a reduction in operating expenses by $62.7 million. Refer note 2.5(iii) for more details. The consolidated entity recognised revenue of $814.7 million for the current year compared to $810.8 million for the prior year; an increase of $3.9 million. The increase in revenue recognised was primarily attributable to revenue from rendering of services and government grants which increased by $21.1 million this was offset by gas services revenue which decreased by $25.1 million from $273.7 million in the prior year to $248.6 million the current year due to reduced gas supply. Impairment charge and revaluation of assets adjustments PPrrooffiitt ffrroomm ooppeerraatt iioonnss 1 EBITDA excluding significant items is non-IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) information. Management has provided an analysis of significant items included in the reported IFRS financial information. These items have been considered in relation to their size and nature, and have been adjusted from the reported (i.e. IFRS) information to assist readers to better understand the financial performance of the underlying operating business. These adjustments are assessed on a consistent basis from period to period and include both favourable and unfavourable items. Non-IFRS financial information, while not subject to audit or review, has been extracted from the financial report. 2 Gifted asset revenue, although a non-cash item, is a recurring item in the normal course of business and therefore has not been excluded from underlying profits before tax. LLiiqquuiiddiittyy aanndd ccaappiittaall rreessoouurrcceess The consolidated cash flow statement shows a decrease in cash and cash equivalents for the year ended 30 June 2022 of $1.4 million (2021: $25.1 million increase). Operating activities generated $235.6 million (2021: $139.7 million) of net cash flows. The revised method of capitalising indirect costs, mentioned above, is the primary driver of the increase in cash in flows from operating activities and corresponding cash out flows from investing activities. Cash flows from operating activities have been offset by net cash used for investing activities of $193.6 million (2021: $99.4 million) and $43.4 million (2021: $15.1 million) from financing activities, largely due to payment of property plant and equipment of $189.9 million (2021: $111.9 million and repayment of lease liabilities of $29.4 million (2021: $29.1 million), and an equity withdrawal during the year of $30.0 million (2021: $20.0 million equity injection). The net cash outflow of $1.4 million (2021: $25.1 million inflow) in the current year is primarily due to the equity withdrawal during the year. As at 30 June 2022, IES Pty Ltd owed the Corporation $36.4 million (2021: $33.9 million) which is made up of an inter-entity receivable of $11.4 million (2021: $9.0 million) in relation to services provided and $25.0 million (2021: $25.0 million) in loans provided in respect of the IES Solar SETuP program. The Corporation has reversed the estimated credit loss on the loans of $7.1 million as a result of the forecasted cash flows from the Solar SETuP program. Refer to Notes 8 and 12 for details.
